CCPS gets new logo; LPD tracks sex pervert
By Laura Katsirdakis
Sometimes Mother Nature can be just as much of an obstacle
for police as our friendly neighbourhood criminals.
Elgin Austen, director of police services for the Campus
Community Police Service, warned that this time of year
water can rise high enough to flood riverside pathways
and even some parking lots. On Saturday, the Medway parking
lot was partially reclaimed by the Thames River.
With the river flowing very quickly and the high water levels,
Austen recommended taking caution. He noted the river levels
are controlled by city dams, but that heavy rainfall, in conjunction
with melting snow, can cause flooding.
In other news, our very own campus cops have answered the
age old question: doesn’t everyone like getting a makeover?
CCPS agrees and would like students to know their logo has
recently undergone a polishing.
Austen explained that the new logo is intended to emphasize
that the CCPS is a community partner, and students are considered
a major partner with campus police in their effort to improve
the quality of life on campus.
Const. Paul Martin, spokesperson for the London Police Department,
warned students that a number of incidents of sexual assault
have occurred the downtown area, near Victoria Park. Two of
the three incidents in the area are suspected by police to
have been committed by the same individual.
The suspect, shown above, is a white male, 19 to 25 years
old, about 5 foot 7 inches and 150 to 160 pounds. Anyone who
spots this individual is asked to call police at 661-5670 or
Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. Just a hint: if you do spot
him, stay out of ass-grabbing range.
